As an American, going all the way to St. Paul's Cathedral in London and found out the US service members who lost their lives during second world were being honored by this tribute. I'm truly touched. It was paid for entirely by donations from British men and women.

My adult daughter and I were exploring London, including St. Paul's Cathedral. We did not realize the American Memorial Chapel was there. I was very overwhelmed the the English people paying for this themselves to thank Americans for their help during World War ll. Americans get so little thanks, this had a powerful message and it is absolutely beautiful, especially... More

I'm surprised by how few reviews there are of this. This end of St. Paul's Cathedral, including the high altar, was destroyed by enemy bombing in World War II. The area behind the new high altar became The American Memorial Chapel in 1958 and was funded by the British People in memory of and gratitude to the 28000 U.S. service... More

My daughter and son in-law are both Active Duty USAF, serving in Lakenheath. My wife, son and I had the pleasure of visiting them for Christmas. We rode an open roof double decker on a rainy London morning and St. Paul's was one of our stops. Until that day I didn't even know the Memorial existed. Needless to say, it's... More

I had not reflected on this chapel until I saw that Tripadvisor was looking for reviews on it. Now that I think about it, I realize just how wonderful this chapel is. In fact, if I was told that I only had one hour to spend in London, I'd want to go back to the American Memorial Chapel in St.... More

Staying in City of London

Neighborhood Profile
City of London
From its ancient past as a Roman trading outpost to its 21st century status as the wealthiest square mile in the world, the financial district known simply as “The City” is one of London's most historic and fascinating neighborhoods. Here high rise office towers such as Norman Foster’s Gherkin mingle with Roman ruins and architectural marvels from virtually every era in between, including Christopher Wren's glorious St.Paul's Cathedral, and John Soane's dauntingly classicist Bank of England. This neighborhood is also home to some of the finest restaurants and plushest hotels in Europe, in addition to an assortment of watering holes, upscale shops, and Tube stations. During the week, the City is abuzz with white collar workers going about their business; the weekend sees this area turn into a quiet haven for sightseers.
